To close out 2015 J Jack Unrau and Emily Orr read some public domain stories including the classic The Gift of the Magi and some Chesterton, Dostoyevsky and Dickens. The Dickens story seems kind of holiday-tangential but it gets there in the end.

In this storytime for grownups show J Jack Unrau and Emily Orr read fairy tales from the brothers Grimm, Mark Twain, Stanislaw Lem and more. Most of them are strange and more than a few have a bit of a death predilection. Enjoy! (The incidental music in this episode is Irish Fairy (Remember the Oscar Wilde) by the Underscore Orkestra and Fairy Tale by Plushgoolash .)

American poet Sam Hamill does not shy away from the hard realities of war, poverty, personal loss, and ecological collapse, and he writes about them in a way that is accessible and down to earth. David Fraser plays a number of readings recorded by Hamill in his gritty, engaging voice; then David offers comments. Sam Hamill will deliver the keynote address at the Cascadia Poetry Festival, to be held in Nanaimo April 30 - May 3. See http://cascadiapoetryfestival.org/ for details.
